Trade Agreement between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Swiss Confederation - Motion to Regret (1 May 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I too am a member of the European Union Select Committee—not of the same sub-committee as my noble friend Lord Whitty but of the External Affairs Sub-Committee. That committee has been considering several of the trade agreements. None of those that we have looked at deals with anything more than 0.1% of our trade. When I am feeling really cynical, I think that the amount of money...

Northern Ireland Update - Statement (29 Apr 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, does the Minister appreciate just how much ordinary civil society is suffering because there is no Executive in Northern Ireland? An example of that is the charity that Lyra McKee was involved with, which I think is called Headliners. It works with young people in troubled areas, particularly in this country, and in Northern Ireland, with young people across the divide. It works...

Brexit: Gibraltar - Question (29 Apr 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, does the Minister recognise the great negotiating skills that the Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, has shown on basic agreements made by the Spanish Government about long-standing issues he hoped they could move forward with? The problem is that the British Government have let Gibraltar down phenomenally. I agree that he supported the withdrawal agreement, but the Chief...

European Council - Statement (25 Mar 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I am sure that many people outside will be amazed that the Prime Minister paid no attention to the events in London on Saturday, or to the unprecedented numbers signing a petition to Parliament about revocation. The Prime Minister acknowledges in the Statement that she needs to compromise. She has a compromise on the table: enough people will back her deal if she agrees to a...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, these contributions are very brief. I know that many of us would love to talk about a much larger range of women’s activities and contributions across the world. Today, I will limit myself to talking about a very small part of a commission I have chaired for the past 18 months, which last week published a report looking into the experiences of the most disadvantaged women in this...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, we have seen a very long and extended debate. There are lots of things I wanted to cover, but will now not do so, as they have been so eloquently dealt with by previous speakers. I have continued to take an interest in the challenge of Brexit and the Northern Ireland peace process, and it is not the backstop that I object to in the withdrawal agreement. I supported the Government...

Forced Marriages: Repatriation Charges - Question (9 Jan 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I wonder whether the Minister has considered the damage done to our reputation internationally with those countries that are not as caring about human rights and addressing forced marriage as this country is. What are the Government going to do to repair that damage, so that this is not seen as a green light by other countries to continue bad practices?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Nurses: Pay (20 Dec 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many NHS nurses in England earn less than £30,000 per year; and what proportion of all NHS nurses in England this represents.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Social Services: Pay (20 Dec 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of how many of those working in the social care sector in England earn less than £30,000 per year; and what proportion of all those working in that sector in England this represents.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Nurses and Social Services: Pay (20 Dec 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the cost of uprating the salaries of (1) NHS nurses, and (2) those working in the social care sector in England to £30,000 or more.

Privileges and Conduct Committee - Motion to Agree (17 Dec 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I want to intervene briefly, particularly to follow the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, about cross-examination. I refer noble Lords to my relevant interests as set out in the register. I have spent a lot of time working with women who have suffered sexual exploitation and are vulnerable, but I am not saying that there are direct parallels. I am saying that...

Young People - Motion to Take Note (13 Dec 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I thank everyone enormously. It was a very rich and wide-ranging debate from which I think we have all learned a little. Challenges can be things that we learn from and learn to move forward from. For too many children and young people they are limiting, and stop them being able to live full and contributing lives in the way they want to. I look forward to working with noble Lords...

Young People - Motion to Take Note (13 Dec 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, it is a great honour for me to be able to introduce this debate on the challenges facing young people. I have deliberately made it a wide-ranging debate. There are therefore topics that I will not cover, partly because I know that many of my colleagues intend so to do. I look forward to hearing from them. I want before I continue to thank all those organisations that have briefed...

Universal Credit - Question (26 Nov 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I currently chair a commission which is looking at services and support for women who have experienced violence and abuse. Through that, I have met many of the women whom other Members here have been trying to alert the Minister to. I am sure that the Minister has every good intention, but I have to tell her that these women really do feel that they cannot disclose what is happening...

Brexit: Proposed Agreement - Question (14 Nov 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I congratulate the Minister on trying to bring everyone together. Does he appreciate, and agree, that there are 2 million people who will be much more affected than he or I will be by whatever deal the Government are considering and whatever deal is accepted? They were not allowed to vote in the referendum, but they would be entitled to vote today. Do they not deserve a say?

Good Friday Agreement: Impact of Brexit - Motion to Take Note (11 Oct 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow my noble friend Lord Dubs, who has a lifetime of commitment and work around peacebuilding and civil rights in Northern Ireland. He is good counsel for people like me who are on the EU Committee and have been working on this issue quite a lot in the last year. The Good Friday agreement was the result of careful negotiations, and involved of course the...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: EU Citizenship (22 Aug 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to negotiate with the EU an offer to UK citizens living outside of Northern Ireland but in Great Britain the opportunity to become EU citizens.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit: Public Consultation (22 Aug 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Callanan on 5 January (HL3922), whether they have given any further consideration to systematically finding out the views of the British population on the nature of a negotiated Brexit, such as through citizens' assemblies.
